Getting tickets for the Google I/O developer conference has always been a thing of difficulty. In 2014, Google changed up ticketing for the conference and started a lottery system. Google would randomly select roughly 5,000 applications and grant these developers the opportunity to purchase a ticket for I/O.

We’re not sure how things are going to go this year, but chances are it will be the same lottery system we’ve seen over the last couple years. This year’s application period is going be between February 22 10 am PST through February 27 5 pm PST…

Thanks to a little game that Google created for developers, we learned last month that the conference would be taking place again at the Shoreline Amphitheatre on May 17, 18, and 19.

While we haven’t heard anything about ticket availability or pricing, we are assuming that it will be similar to that of the past. This means that somewhere between 5,000 and 7,000 attendees will be making their way to Mountain View, CA in May with tickets costing $900 for general admittance and $300 for the limited number of student tickets.

You can learn more about Google I/O by visiting its website. More information should come the closer we get to the conference.
